The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo star and recent Vogue cover girl Rooney Mara is now getting into the jewelry business--sort of. Mara partnered with Kora, a company that uses African products made by African artisans to empower small communities.

Mara helped design this $95 Uweza necklace, which was made from a cow bone wrapped in metal. Proceeds from the necklace benefit the Uweza Foundation, which provides financial support to families living in Kenyan slums.
